1 The Salem Gazette of May 6, 1776, states an officer of the Fifth regiment, whom it calls ‘Capt. Thomas Knight,’ died at Boston, the next day after the engagement, of the wounds he received in the battle, and that ‘he was greatly regretted, being esteemed one of the best officers among the King's troops.’ Also that twenty-three wounded soldiers lately died at the Castle, and that Lieut. Hawkshaw ‘was wounded in the cheek, and it is thought will not recover.’ A Lieut. Gore [perhaps Cox?] was ‘wounded in the arm.’—Gazette, May 5.
